You’d think nothing had been happening round here.
But everything has been happening.
Firstly, we had to finish off classes for the year. We were so tired out, it was a relief, and yet it’s a poo to interrupt the learnz. But knowing when to rest is important.
Secondly, we had MLX. The [...]
I’m putting together The Little Big Weekend with Ramona for the 1st/2nd of December here in Sydney. We’ll be hosting the lovely and badass Ramona Staffeld, who’ll be teaching a day of workshops on the Saturday.
This weekend looks like fun.
Geoff Bull and the Finer Cuts are doing their first explicitly-for-dancers gig at the Performance ball on Saturday. SQUEE (linky)
The Speakeasy is on again after the ball, and that will be FUNTIMES as they are doing the usual excellence, but also including [...]
I’m back running, desperate to get some serious exercise during the christmas dancing drought. So far it’s going well, except today I did run [...]

Secondly, the band were the Ozcats, who are a Bob Crosby tribute band, [...]
A set list from a gig I did at the Speakeasy on Saturday night (22/1/11, 11pm – 2am or so; I DJed 12-1am or so). I haven’t done this in a while, but I was so inspired by the gig itself, and my previously-shitting-me DJing so [...]
A few Sydney dancers have recently been running some late night speakeasy events after churchpit on Fridays, and they’ve been very successful.
